People of Prayer

Lord, teach us to pray. Luke 11:1

Thousands pray only in time of great stress, danger, or uncertainty. Christ instructed His followers to pray at all times, both by His teaching and His example. So fervent and so direct were His prayers that once,after He finished praying, His followers pleaded, "Lord, teach us to pray" ( Luke 11:1). They yearned to be in touch with God, as they knew Christ was.
Have you ever said, "Lord, teach me to pray"? Prayer shouldn't be casual or sporadic, dictated only by the needs of the moment. Prayer should be as much a part of our lives as breathing. Never has our world stood in grater need of people who will pray. Will you be one of them?
 We are the people that need to pray more than once or twice daily.
